Mondays First sets aside a time and place for women faculty to get together for conversation, community, and writing. These CSU Writes sessions are sponsored by The Women and Gender Collaborative.
Mondays First afford a rare, interdisciplinary, and supportive space for women faculty to gather and work productively on their own projects, together. The title, “Mondays First,” refers both to the gathering time and to the need for faculty women writers to privilege their writing when building and enhancing their careers in academe.
Each Monday gathering opens with a gender-aware discussion session about our current writing challenges and successes as well as recent research and findings on writing strategies. This half-hour discussion is then followed by an 80-minute writing session in which participants can write “on their own” yet within a positive and communal space. Coffee and tea will be provided.
It is ideal if you can attend the entire Mondays First session but understandable (given faculty schedules) if you cannot. Feel free to drop in for the length of time you have available. Also, feel free to bring a colleague or, if you cannot attend, forward this invitation to a colleague.
